Type of Work Placements

The type of work engineering students can undertake varies from well-defined positions with specific tasks and procedures to unstructured situations where they work with only objectives and deadlines. Most, but not all, work under one or more professional engineer who can provide technical direction and mentoring. Students are able to contribute to all aspects of a project, including research, analysis, design, production, inspection, and documentation. Academic Staff Members in Co-operative Education in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science can advise employers on structuring job duties to meet the needs of both students and employers.

Memorial’s co-op students have had work term placements in all Canadian provinces, in the United States, and abroad in countries including: Australia, Belgium, Bermuda, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, India, Ireland, Poland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, and Sweden.
